What to Serve with your Bacon Ranch Cheddar Dip?

Bacon Ranch Cheddar Dip is so good that I could eat it on a spoon and be happy. But if you want an alternative to dip, what should you use? Try:

  • Vegetables. It is a classic. Carrots, celery etc. However, how about doing some crispy streak fries and using them to dip with.
  • Crackers. Always a favorite but consider a crostini or garlic bread stick.
  • Chips. But not plain old boring chips, look for a unique flavor, like rosemary and olive oil, Old Bay or something else outside the box.

Can I make this Crack Dip ahead? Can I freeze it?

Indeed, you can make this Crack Dip ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator and bake right before you wish to serve it.

Freeze the dip in an air tight container and put it in the fridge the night before and bake right before you are going to serve it. It should stay well in the freezer for a month.
